Deep Hearts!

I have enjoyed using my Deep Heart Tray for many things this season:

Sugary Cupcakes....

How to:
1. Cakes: Make cupcakes of your choice in the Deep Heart Tray.
               (Box mix works fine.)
                Chill in fridge for best frosting results.

2. Sugars: used store-bought colored sugars or make your own.
To make: Place sugar in a baggie.(refined or the "raw" sugar is a little bigger. Coconut works too!)
               Put a few drops of food coloring in the bag.
               Seal the bag.
               Smoosh (technical term) with your hands until mixed.
               Place in a small bowl.

3. Frosting: Place pre-made frosting in a small bowl.
              (I used store-bought- not my norm!!)
             Melt in Microwave for 15 seconds or so- until melted.

4. Assemble: Take chilled Heart cake.
             Dip in melted frosting
             Dip in colored sugar or coconut
             Set on cooling rack until frosting is set.

Jello Jigglers - filled about half full.

Other ideas for the Deep Heart Tray:    
        Meat loaf
        Brownies! (They work in every shape!!)
        Rice Krispie Treats
        Baked Pancakes
        Chilies Rellenos/ Egg Quiche
        Chapagne Salad (frozen strawberry salad)
        Ice cubes
        Ice Cream Heats

Long Time

It has been a long time since I have updated. So much for my once a week goal!!! I won't give up!

I thought some of you would find this amusing....

This is Jesus' Family Tree a la Brownies!!

My Foundations Class challenged me to make a visual of the genealogy found in
Matthew 1. The girl can't pass up a challenge like that!!

So I started with Abraham & Sarah...

                                                                  ... and ended with Joseph, Mary & JESUS!

I used the Little Chefs Tray.

Good times!
